This timeless tale about a Middle Ages boy who befriends a dragon will warm the hearts of little ones and grown-ups alike. When the young son of a shepherd discovers that the dragon living in the cave near his home is not dangerous as people deem him to be, but kind and sweet, he still has to convince Saint-George the dragon-slayer that the great beast is harmless. Will he succeed?
